Lore has it that the seas around the Aran islands were so dangerous that fishermen of times past wouldn't bother learning to swim, since they knew they'd have no chance against the wild currents. This wonderfully crafted pewter sculpture (16" long) depicts these fishermen in a traditional boat used in the west of Ireland, known as a currach or naomhóg ('little saint'). The islanders lived off the sea so fishing with good nets was very important.
